Archived Event: Sixth Annual Health Sciences and Technology Hokie Pitch
About This Event
For the first-time in a “virtual” setting, Virginia Tech students will pitch biomedical commercialization ideas to a “shark tank”-style panel of judges at 2:30 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 7, during the Health Sciences and Technology (HS&T) Hokie Pitch.
The competition will involve 15 students who have worked with real-world mentors, selected intellectual property, and created an entrepreneurial plan to develop and commercialize biomedical discoveries. Viewers can watch the live webcast of the teams making their pitches beginning at 2:30 p.m. Monday.
The competition, now in its sixth year, involves five teams of Virginia Tech students in the Translational Biology, Medicine, and Health (TBMH) graduate program. The students will compete for $4,000 in cash prizes contributed by the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute, Carilion Clinic, Luna Innovations Inc., and the Woods Rogers law firm.
